Why complete this Scissor Lift and Vertical Lift Course?


Section 21 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic.) requires that employers provide an adequate level of information, instruction, training and supervision to employees to enable them to work safely.

The Elevating Work Platform Association of Australia states, “The EWPA Duty of care ‘Yellow Card’ is a nationally recognised industry training program developed by the EWPA in consultation with members and industry. The intention of this program is to assist operators, employers, equipment owners and manufactures in complying with the OH&S regulation. The Yellow Card provides the holder with evidence of training in a particular type of EWP where no licence exists. The Yellow Card provides evidence that the operators of specific types of EWPs have been trained in the safe use of the work platform. The supplier, employer and user all have documentary evidence that the required ‘duty of care’ has been met or exceeded.”


Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements


For the Scissor Lift and Vertical Lift Course, trainees must have adequate English language skills to safely complete tasks relating to EWP use, such as being able to:

  • Read and understand scissor lift and vertical lift specifications
  • Complete paperwork such as Safe Work Method Statements and logbook entries
  • Ensure safe working loads are not exceeded
  • Speak English clearly in order to explain, describe and verify sometimes complex needs and issues

If a trainee is concerned that they may not have the capabilities described above, please contact WAM Training on 1800 143 343 for advice.


What is the Scissor Lift and Vertical Lift Course outcome?


Once competence is achieved, trainees will receive a Statement of Attainment (from WAM Training) and a Yellow Card (from the Elevating Work Platform Association).

What does the Scissor Lift and Vertical Lift Course assessment involve?
